Warriston

Anyone who loves the closeness of a small community will love Warriston, an intimate, serene suburb located just five minutes from the heart of Edinburgh. The neighbourhood's homey feel is surprising, considering its part of the largest, most bustling city in Scotland. The area's name is derived from Warriston House, a large mansion that has sadly been demolished. Houses in the suburb range from traditional Edinburgh tenements to newer, cutting-edge developments. The Royal Botanic Gardens, Royal Museum of Scotland, National Portrait Gallery, and the Edinburgh Castle are some of the area’s most popular nearby attractions.

  • Visit Sir James Young Simpson's grave at Warriston Cemetery to enjoy one-of-a-kind landscaping and learn fascinating insights into some of the area’s most significant historical leaders.
  • Stroll along the cool, serene Water of Leith, a river flowing through the suburb and other parts of Edinburgh, eventually ending at the Port of Leith where it drains into the sea through the Firth of Forth.
  • Stop by the Gold Sea on Ferry Road to enjoy a world-class slice of homemade steak pie.

Warriston is located northeast of the well-known Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh. Buses present perhaps the fasted and most convenient method for accessing this one-of-a-kind enclave. Lothian Buses provide efficient service linking the suburb with Edinburgh's central business district. Open-top sightseeing buses provide an excellent means for exploring the city’s most important destinations. Private car rental facilities are also widely available throughout the area though parking spots can be difficult to find in the city centre. Public transit is far more affordable and convenient.
